Lance Wasniewski, technical/product development manager with Lexington Manufacturing, attended the Hunter Douglas “Engaging in Quality Best Practices” conference held in Broomfield, CO. Lexington manufactures engineered components for windows, doors, and other millwork and related industries, and was one of a few select suppliers invited to the conference.
Hunter Douglas is an international company specializing in window treatments and hosts the internal event annually. They bring in representatives from their facilities worldwide to focus on improving quality throughout the Hunter Douglas operations.
“We were honored to be invited to the Hunter Douglas conference. There was good discussion about improvements within the window industry,” said Wasniewski. “A lot of information about tools and techniques was discussed during the updates and presentations covering best practices.”
Capping the two-day conference, Lexington received the Hunter Douglas Proficiency Achievement Quality System Review (QSR) award. Lexington earned the QSR award for achieving a high score on an audit performed by Hunter Douglas at the Lexington facility. The day-long audit covered the processes throughout all aspects of Lexington’s manufacturing procedures.
“We were honored to be recognized by Hunter Douglas at this conference, especially since they are so highly regarded within the industry,” said Wasniewski. “We are equally committed to improving efficiency and lead times in our manufacturing facilities, while also providing quality and an excellent customer experience.”
